Can't see where broken links are?

    Broken links used to be highlighted in yellow, not it seems they are not? This makes it much harder to find and fix them.  I am using Firefox, is it any better in any of the other browsers.

      Hello psycheskinner, Thanks for bringing this to our attention. This bug has been reported to the engineers and they are currently working on a resolution.

    I saw someone else said the same thing. It's possible that the yellow highlighting had been broken with the latest update. I've noticed a number of things that were damaged and I reported them.

    In any case,  you can still see which links are broken by simply looking at your hub outside of edit, just as the public sees it.
    Any broken links will be c̶r̶o̶s̶s̶e̶d̶ ̶o̶u̶t̶ ̶l̶i̶k̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶.

      Thanks Glen. I've had a hub that I just couldn't figure out which link was bad. This helped and I've taken care of it now.

    Yes, I also found it help.  I had been getting the url from the broken links list and scrolling over links looking for it.  This is a bit quicker.  I still hope the highlighting will be returned.

    I use my Chrome Extension called "Check My Links" - it's brilliant and super fast

      Never heard of that extension, makingamark; but I do miss the highlighting.  It is rather a pain in the drain to have to go in outside of edit mode, when that used to be the quick and easy way to find and fix the problem.

        You can check any page any time and it tells you the status of all the links on the page
        OK = Green
        Dead = Red
